5:13 pm
jennifer: andy hershberger is live at manchester's ward one. how do things look there, andy? reporter: well, this is ward one, which is the largest ward in the state's largest city and it has been very, very busy today. you want to take a look behind me, you can see that volume right now is not extraordinarily heavy, but it has been a very, very busy day. we understand that as of just about 15 minutes ago, 4700 votes of the total 6500 ward today. it has been very busy, and it's been that way almost everywhere all day long. in bedford they're expecting a record turnout with more than 85% of registered voters expected to head to the polls. long lines started early but are expected to go late, according to moderator brian shaughnessy. >> it's been a very very strong turnout. at 7:00 this morning when we
5:14 pm
there was not a parking place to be had in the whole bedford complex. but within half an hour that was cleared out. reporter: they altered traffic patterns to ease congestion shun and at the polls there was almost one check in spot per letter of the alphabet. >> it's every american's duty. i don't care if you don't care for either one of the candidates, you still come out and vote, it what you've got t do. there's one of the candidates that aligns more with what i believe in and where i want to see our country go. >> i think health care is my most important subject. being 70 plus. it's always an issue for me. reporter: at ward one in manchester there was also a heavy volume of voters for most of the day. by late afternoon, about two-thirds of registered voters had come in, but officials say
5:15 pm
record. >> we have a privilege in this country to vote. and i think not doing that is really foolish. and remember, women just got their vote not even 100 years ago. so i'm exercising the privilege of being part of this fantastic country. reporter: one thing we understand from the moderator here at ward one is that there are a lot of pee signed up to vote here at the polls, the line was actually out the door for most of the day. don't know what that means, but a lot of new voters manchester, they expect that the volume will pick up throughout the rest of the evening. so especially around the dinner time hour, which we're in right now. but no real issues to report. everybody seems to be getting in and getting out without much trouble. i'm andy hershberger, wmur news 9. jennifer: thank you. problems at one polling place in manchester, the ballot machine stopped working in ward two this morning. so the city clerk said the machine jammed for about 20 minutes, so voters had to leave
5:16 pm
procedure. >> i have to trust that you're going to put them in later and our vote will count? jennifer: by 9:00 a.m. the machine was working again and poll workers started feeding all the ballots into the machine. and now we move to the race for the state's corner office, democrat colin van ostern and republican chris sununu crisscrossing new hampshire today trying to earn any last minute votes. josh: we are live with both campaigns, but let's begin in concord with at headquarters for sununu. reporter: sununu is a third term executive councilor, he launched his bid for the corner office 14 months ago, he says he is glad election day is finally here. sununu waited in a long line in new field this is morning to cast his vote. he said he's never waited in line to vote before and thinks that secretary of state bill gardner's prediction of a record setting turnout is likely
5:17 pm
his father a three-term governor in new hampshire in the 80's ask his brother a former senator. sununu says he's not worried about the top of the ticket impacting his outcome tonight. >> the top of the ticket is on federal issues, it's a federal race. new hampshire is on its own, and that we stand true to ourselves, we push back on washington when we need to. i think that's why we've had so much success over the course of this race, people are ready for change in this state. they're r want and do it our own win. reporter: if sununu wins tonight it would put a republican in the corner office for the first time since 2002. the democratic nominee, colin van ostern, another executive councilor, let's head over to shelley walcott in manchester for more on that. shelley: we are here at the radisson hotel in manchester where preps are under way for what people are hoping will be a historic night for democratic gubernatorial candidate colin van ostern. van ostern is a husband, a
5:18 pm
the governor's executive council to the governor's office. at only 37 years old he could be one of the youngest people elected governor in new hampshire. van ostern has held management roles at southern new hampshire university and stoney field yogurt. we caught up with him this morning as he voted in concord and he was sounding pretty optimistic. >> you know, i know our national politics have felt like a built a mess recently and feels like we're living in someone else's reality show. and we usually find a good way to make progress, we work together, we've been doing that in the state. we need to take our next step forward, focus on how we can keep more young people and startups here. i've been traveling all around the state and i've been hearing from people how excited they are for our state's future. shelley: and at only 37 years old, if van oh tern wins tonight or even if sununu wins tonight,
5:19 pm
country, replacing 44-year-old nicky haley of south carolina. for now, shelley walcott, wmur news 9. jennifer: thank you. some granite staters had the privilege of being the first in the nation to vote today. citizens of dixville much, mills field and hart's location voted at midnight. donald trump had the majority of midnight votes with 32, compared to hillary clintons 25. kelly ayotte was the pick for u.s. lawrence also had victories, and sununu received the most votes for governor. josh: it's well documented that the race for u.s. senate wean the incumbent republican kelly ayotte and governor hassan is easily the most expensive race in state history, the final price tag well north of 100 million when you factor in outside spending, and here's why. current through republicans hold the majority in the senate, but there are 34 seats up for
5:20 pm
would need to flip five of those seats, actually four because if clinton wins tim kaine would become the leader of the senate. why is the majority in the senate so important? well, legislative agenda aside, look no further than the supreme court. currently a vacancy since the senate is the body that confirms the president's nomination, republicans refuse to consider president obama's nominee, merrick garland, in homes of getting a more conservative nominee with a trump victory. but given the advancing age of the score justice, the possibility does exist that the next president could nominate as many as three members to the nine-member court, which could have a lasting impact on the constitutional landscape in this country for decades.
5:21 pm
mike: a beautiful election day weather wise. as soon as temperatures started to rebound off of these morning loss, it did start off quite cold, down to 21 in berlin. mid 20's in concord, back through plymouth, the upper valley, low to mid 20s in the monadnock region, 30 in downtown manchester. but look at the jump, over 40 degrees above where we started the day in concord. we ended up with a high of 66, only six off t set way way back in 1895. right now we're somewhere in between that chilly morning low and the high of 66, down to 5 a1 in concord, low 40's to the north. on average 50's elsewhere, but cooler right along the immediate coastline. it latest be chilly tonight, not as cold as last night. we'll have a light wind develop, out of the south and a few clouds that move in later tonight. so a clear start to the night
5:22 pm
with those clouds slightly cooler temperatures, but still at or a couple of degrees above the average. with the cloud cover a couple of scattered showers as well. you see them trying to hold together in and around toronto, points south and west. this front will move right on top us tomorrow morning and early afternoon, giving us a chance of a couple of scattered showers. but you'll see here on future cast, very little rain in terms of how much we're going to get, a tenth of an inch at most in a few spots. other areas maybe just here or there, with a couple of widely scattered showers. then it clears out later tomorrow night, full sunshine for many on thursday, although there could be a few high clouds during the course of the afternoon. and beyond that things are looking up, in terms of more sun on friday after an isolated shower, but very chilly, to start the weekend before it warms sunday and monday. jennifer: thank you. a former red sox pitcher drawing a curve ball into one race for governor. josh: why space man, bill lee,

5:26 pm
senator bernie sanders says he's hoping for a big turnout around the country, even though sanders lost the democratic nomination to hillary clinton he has spent this leadup to election day campaigning on her behalf. josh: remember this guy, former red sox pitcher bill lee is running as a candidate for governor in vermont, as a member of the liberty union party. he's not expected to win, but he could pick up enough votes to keep the democratic and republican candidates from getting a majority. if that happens, that means the race would be decided by the vermont legislature in and many voters in massachusetts have already cast their ballots. jennifer: this was the first year the state had had early voting, so more than 100 people cast their ballots before today. massachusetts voters are weighing in on several issues including legalizing recreational marijuana, expanding charters schools and expanding slot machine game l. voters in maine will also decide if the state will legalize marijuana use. both of new hampshire's congressional races are in play on this election day.

5:32 pm

5:39 pm
mitigate. she needs to do very well there if not win it, come very close. even though it's democratic. the city that might be the well weather for the state because it's evenly matched in terms of democrats and republicans is rochester, stratford county. watch rochester as well, very big. derry, republican town but blue collar. so will it go democratic? will it go for trump? could it be a big place donald trump. in the past it's gone both ways in terms of republican and democratic. and then claremont which is a democratic city, but it's a very blue collar democratic city. and as our own adam sexton has reported, there are a lot of trump signs up there, so this could be a big one for donald trump. i go into more detail on this on a story at, and i invite everyone to take a look at it. josh: all right, thanks very
